Kind of makes me wonder,you know ?
What is everybody,a gay fish ?
It is quite possibly thefunniest joke ever conceived,
and its origin is unknown.
The fishdicks jokecrosses all borders
all races all agesand ethnic groups
and is slowly unitingour country.
In fact, the only person whoappears to not get the joke
is rapper Kanye West
who becomes furious when peopleuse the joke on him.
Yo' that is messed up, yo.
I am not gay.
And I sure as hellain't no fish, alright ?
You...really don't get it ?
Hey man,I'm a genius, alright.
I'm the most talented musicianin the world.
If I was a homosexualor a fish, I would know !
You're a rapper.
And you likefish dicks.
You're a gay fish.
No I'm notno gay fish.
Just gay ?
I'm not gay andI'm not a fish.
You are male.
Damn right I'm male !
A male thatlikes fish dicks.
Yeah, I like fishsticks.
You like to put fish dicksin your mouth.
You're a gay fish.
Alright that does it !
I'm gonna kick yourmotherfucking ass !
Dude, that's our joke onnational television !
We know, Cartman.
♪ Nya-nya nya-nyanyaaa nya ♪
♪ We are comedy writers
♪ and youguys aren't ♪
♪ Ha-ha ha-hahaaaa-ha ♪
Jimmy, I'vebeen thinking.
We've got to patentthe fishsticks joke.
Patent ?Yeah, dude.
There's lots of peopleout there using our joke
on their shows.
We should begetting compensated.
Well Eric, that's reallynot how jokes work.
I mean, you know
we should just be happythat the joke is so popular
and made a lotof people laugh.
Dude, fuck that !
Maybe you were writing jokesfor people's amusement
but I don't work for free.
I'm gonnatalk to a lawyer
so we get what'scoming to us.
Jimmy, exactly what partof the fishdicks joke
did Cartman write ?
Well... He didn't actuallywrite any of it...
He just uh...
Let me guess-you wrote the joke
and Cartman just laid onthe couch eating Twizzlers.
Actually itwas potato chips.
I knew it !
Don't let that fat turdwalk all over you, Jimmy !
Stand up for yourself !
Well I mean,he was in the room.
Then justgive him half.
I like you, Jimmy.
But you're notgonna win this.
Consider yourself luckyhe's only asking for half.
Craig, if Cartmandidn't do anything
then he doesn't deserveany of the credit.
And and if I had wheels,I'd be a wagon.
No dude, screw that !
Jimmy, if Cartman didn'twrite the joke
then definitely don't signany patent papers with him !
Just say 'Cartman,
'you didn't have anythingto do with this joke,
and you know it !'
Just give him half.
making up rumors about me
that aremalicious and untrue !
But I am going to proveonce and for all
I am not a fish.
Because I am a genius
I have ascertainedthat fish have gills.
Doctor, do I have gills ?
He does nothave gills.
You hear that,no gills.
So I can't be a fish.
And I'm a genius voice of ageneration, so I'm not gay.
So that is that,alright, it's over.
Now are thereany questions ?
Do you likefishsticks ?
Love 'em !
You're a gay fish.
No, I'm not,ahghghgh !!
Recently we've all come to knowthe fishsticks joke
as probably the funniest,most awesome joke ever.
But who originallycame up with it ?
Well, here's your answer-
Joining us tonight,the brains behind
the incrediblefishsticks joke --
The one and only,Carlos Mencia !
Yeah,Viva la Mexico !
So Carlos, you've gota show on Comedy Central
a stand up tour,where did you have time
to come up withthis classic joke ?
Well, you know, I was justkickin' it with my homies
and my brain -you know my brain
is always so full of ideas'cuz I'm so funny and stuff...
So I was all like -
"Hey Pepeeto,you like fishsticks ?"
And my homeboy says,
'Yeah Carlos y'knowyou're so funny'.
And then it justoccurred to me,
'Oh man, you must bea gay fish, holmes !'
That's just how I cameup with it, mi amigos !
Carlos Mencia is takingcredit for our joke !
Yeah dude, I told youthis would happen.
Now look, I got a lawyer todraw up some patent papers.
We've got to sign theseso that people know
that the joke belongsto you and me !
Uh... I don't know, Eric.
I really don't think I want tosign that, very much.
But Jimmy, some fat turdis taking credit
for somethinghe didn't do !
Well, to be perfectlyf-f-frank, Eric,
I think I came up witha little bit more of the joke
than you did.
Well, you know, I mean,I basically wrote the thing
and you just kind of...ate chips.
Jimmy, that's messed up.
We decided that dayto write together.
Don't you remember ?
Hey Jimmy,you wanna hang out ?

Unless you wannateam up or something ?
Team up ?
Okay, let's writesome jokes together.

I just need youto teach me some
Jew defensive moves, Kyle.
Because we really bothdid come up with it.
You know what, Cartman ?
I believe you.
You do ?Yes.
I believe thatyou believe

That's how peoplelike you work.
Your ego isso out of whack
that it will do whateverit can to protect itself.
And people witha messed up ego
can do thesemental gymnastics
to convince themselvesthey're awesome
when really they'rejust douchebags.
But... I'm sure I helpedcome up with the joke...

Well, about a week ago
our country was blessedwith the fishsticks joke.
And ever since then,us comedians
have been kicking ourselvesfor not thinking of it !
But today, we have with usthe true creators
of the fishsticks joke-
Please welcome the comedy teamof Cartman and Valmer !
Hey guys !
Hi Ellen !
You guys likefishsticks ?
Thank you, thank youno really, thank you.
So guys I gotta ask,
How did you come upwith this incredible joke ?
It was just-
Ellen, comedy is like a gameof racquetball, you know ?
You serve, and the otherperson hits it back.
It bounces off the wall-you backhand it.
And it goes back and forthand back and forth !
Then hopefully, you'vegot a good joke.
But guys, this jokeis so... perfect.
Can you explain how nobodythought of it before ?
Well Ellen, the t-t-t-truth of the matter is
that there's never reallybeen a team like us before.
I mean, let's beperfectly honest
a lot of people wouldn'twork with someone
who was disabled,but I see past that.
I look beyond Jimmy'sdisabilities and find a bond-
Which can unite usin comedy.
Working with crippled peopleis really important.
That's so great...and are you crying Jimmy ?
Oh don't cry pal, you'regonna get me started.
Anyway, what was importantfor us, as a team, Ellen
was to make sure thateveryone knew that
we came up with the joke,
I see, and did you knowthat Carlos Mencia
was found dead inhis house this morning
with fishsticks stuffeddown his open neck hole ?
Uhhh... excuse me ?
Get my jet ready !
Looks like we gotanother inning to play.
Alright so check it out,
we've got offers fromVan de Camps
and Gorton's Fishermen,to do commercials !
It's always been my dreamto go on a national TV show
and talk aboutthe craft of comedy.
Yeah, that wascool, huh ?
Eric, there's somethingI really need to know.
What's that ?
How do you livewith yourself ?
You know you had nothing to dowith the fishsticks joke -
but you justkeep pretending.
How do you look at yourselfin the fucking mirror ?
That's whatI want to know !
So...here it is.
How do you take credit forsomething you didn't do ?
That is bullcrap Jimmyand you know it !
I had just as much to dowith the fishsticks joke
as you did !
Dude, it's Puff Daddy !
Tie up thesemotherfuckers !
Now, I'm gonna ask youmotherfuckers one more time.
Why did you startthese rumors about me ?
Please, I wasn't startingrumors about you.
I don't even knowwho you are !
Oh right, everyoneknows who I am !
I want to knowhow this got started.
Wul, we were just talkingabout ideas for jokes and-
Oh so now it's we,huh, Jimmy ?
A minute ago you saidyou did it all yourself !
Wul, I just a bu- I bu-
Uh bubbu bubbua-bubbu !
We both came upwith it together.
You wanna knowhow it happened ?
Oh boy, it's mybest pal Eric !
What you up to ?
I'm tryingto write jokes
but I'm not as funnyas you, so it's tough.
Well, maybeI can help you.
We can team up !
Wow, you would help meeven though I'm crippled.
You are caringand not fat.
Now let's see,how about a joke
that has somethingto do with fishsticks.
You know,'cuz fishsticks
sounds likefish dicks, Jimmy.
Eric Cartman,you are handsome
and not evenremotely fat.
Thanks- so whatI'm thinking is,
Do you like fishsticksin your mouth ?
What was that ?
Eric, Eric youhave to save us !
An entire army ofJew robots !
( screaming )
Oh my God, what areJew Bots doing here ?
Flame on !
Flame off !
You saved everyone fromthe Jewbots, Cartman !
C'mon Jimmy, we gotta go backand finish that joke !
"...like fishsticksin your mouth ?"
"What are youa gay fish ?" -There !
Wow Eric, incredible !
Too bad I'm a dick andI'm gonna take all the credit.
S-s-suck it, bitch.
I guess it really wasall me who came up with it.
What ? !
You gotta let Jimmy go,it's all my fault.
He's gonna kill you.
You won't even admitit was just me
knowing you'regonna die ?
Jimmy, you really believethat you came up with it
all on your own ?
Oh my God, wait...I totally get it now !
What, I still don'tget anything !
All this time I've beenmad at you Jimmy
for trying to takeall the credit.
But now I realize it'sjust that your ego
has made you believe thingshappened differently.
That's what Kyle wastrying to tell me.
That you havesuch a huge ego
you do thesemental gymnastics
to make yourselfa part of things.
I thought you werejust trying to
Jew me out ofmy part of the credit
but now I realizethat some people
just have egos thatare so out of whack-
That no matter whatpeople tell them,
they can't accept thetruth of who they are.
Jimmy, I owe youan apology.
I realize now youcan't help believing
you createdthe entire joke,
because your ego won'tlet you think otherwise.
I just have toaccept that.
for being sounderstanding.
For so long I'veconsidered myself
God's gift to the world
that I couldn't take itwhen people made fun of me.
But they weren'tmaking fun of me...
They were tryingto help me.
Boys, I understandwhat you did now.
Untie them guys...I know what I have to do.
It's time for meto stop running.
I need to believewhat people tell me.
Let all my fans knowI love 'em
but a gay fishjust can't live
in the outside world forever.
Don't be sadfor me, guys--
I'm going home !
Uh - c'mon !
